Team JaS Racing: Tahoe Locals’ High-Performance Ironman SeminarAugust 25th, 2013 By Adam
Sherwick and Jami Min, a couple of local Ironman triathletes who moved to the Tahoe area so they could train at high-altitude, are coming to Tahoe Mountain Sports to share their racing experience during a fun and educational seminar on September 18 from 5 to 6 p.m. We are excited to learn more about how to train our bodies (and minds) to perform their very best, and we’re sure any attendees (Ironman triathletes or not) will take away loads of useful information to apply toward their own athletic performances.
Team JaS Seminar: “Habits for High Performance”
Here are some topics we will be covering which will help you have your own epic day:
Setting Up Base Camp For Peak Performance – tips on training including technique, aerobic/anaerobic periodization, strength and flexibility
The Fourth Event – tips on fueling and recovery including micro/macro nutrients, nutrition periodization, body fat, sleep, massage
Make Racing Enjoyable – tips on race prep including equipment choices, key workouts, benchmarking vs. time trials, race simulations, tune-up events
How Motorsport Helps Multisport – tips on mental fitness including facing your fears, motivation, concentration, setting goals using inputs vs. outputs
Bio of Team JaS (pronounced “jaz”)
My wife and I are a Team in Training AND in Racing. We have always been drawn to outdoor challenges, and in fact met during a rough-water swim in Santa Cruz! We each started competing in duathlons and triathlons in the early 90′s. Since then, we have traveled the world in search of epic destination races (over 30 Ironmans) and are extremely thrilled that the destination this time is our own home town! Over the past twenty years, we have been privileged to cross paths with some of the sport’s most provocative personalities and have been personally mentored/coached by triathlon legend The Grip himself, six-time Hawaii Ironman World Champion, Mark Allen. We’ve had some success as well, each qualifying for Kona in our very first Ironman and then returning for redemption another couple of times! Lately we’ve been focusing on the half-ironman distance and will have raced in the past four 70.3 World Championships in Las Vegas (including the one two weeks before Ironman Lake Tahoe). We wanted to share with you some things we’ve learned along the way as well as from our racing adventures outside of multi-sport.
We hope to see you there!
